‘Flint & Silver contains the essential ingredients to attract a worldwide following’ Western Morning News

‘An epic tale of friendship and treason’ The Sea

‘Swashbuckling adventure on the high seas doesn’t get much better than this. If you loved Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island as a kid ― and who didn’t? ― then you will absolutely love this not-for-kids prequel. John Drake writes beautifully, and you’ll be torn between savoring the words and quickly flipping the pages. Any favorable comparison to Stevenson or Patrick O’Brian is totally justified’ Nelson DeMille

‘Builds to a spectacular crescendo. Drake vigorously recounts bloody exploits and savage adventures, updating Stevenson with the addition of sex and violence, not to mention the pirates’ own highly creative profanity’ Kirkus Review

About the Author:

John Drake trained as a biochemist?before realizing he wasn’t much good at science?and worked as an anchorman for PharmaVision, a live-TV broadcast service produced by ICI Pharmaceuticals, before leaving to write full-time in 1999. His hobbies and interests include muzzle-loaded shooting, history and politics. Flint and Silver was inspired by the many unanswered questions left in Robert Louis Stevenson’s much-loved classic, Treasure Island.
